I am a Muslim, and I believe an intersectional approach is crucial for climate justice. I am also a registered architect, and I started my own practice in 2019 that focuses on energy efficient, low carbon buildings.
Prior to being self-employed, my involvement in climate action had been signing petitions and despairing at the state of the world.
I was welcomed into community organising when I met the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC) at a climate rally in Sydney. I believe their multi-faith angle to climate activism is valid and important, and I feel a conviction to dedicate my time and energy organising with them. I am currently the Sydney convener and a committee member of ARRCC.
I also serve as Co-President of the Muslim Collective.
